Self Isolation Update
I thought I would send a hello to all of you while I have Internet service. It has been slow for a lot of rural DSL users since people are home and online. DSL is kind of the old party line equivalent of phones I believe... or so it seems that way.
I am finding ways to take advantage of being home for long periods of time. Otherwise, it is an opportunity to read or watch a TV show in the daytime without any guilt whatsoever. I was a little guilty about baking a cake yesterday but I froze half of it so the temptation would not remain but a few days.
I shared a photo of these flowers on IG this morning. Aren't they beautiful? They were sent yesterday from my friend and former neighbor. Our boys were children together and her twins are still friends with Christopher. She dropped extra soup and bread off here a few days ago, I met her as she drove up so we could social distance (a phrase which has become a verb).
She decided to send flowers to friends during this time to support a local business. Brilliant! What a good idea. After I took this photo, I divided the bouquet into three vases to enjoy in different parts of the house.
We are fine. Well, I am but my husband is climbing the walls already. Our voluntary self isolation is now a state mandatory isolation. We each made a trip to a grocery store wearing a mask earlier this week, me one day and my husband the next day. Since there are now limitations on the amount of food one can purchase, I was able to find everything I needed that the stores had been out of before.
Being in a high risk category, the self isolation will continue unless there are unusual circumstances. I'll be back on Saturday!
